In this paper we are interested in estimating the social benefits (option value and non-use values) to park visitors from a project for grassland conservation in two Regional Parks of the Bologna Apennines (Italy). A Contingent Valuation Method (CVM) survey by questionnaire was carried out in 2007. Respondents were asked their Willingness To Pay (WTP) per year for the conservation project. The main results show that the majority of respondents is in favour of the project implementation, and the mean WTP is about € 14 per year. Determinants of the WTP are income and being a member of associations for environmental goods conservation.

Abstract

In this paper we are interested in estimating the social benefits (option value and non-use values) to park visitors from a project for grassland conservation in two Regional Parks of the Bologna Apennines (Italy). A Contingent Valuation Method (CVM) survey by questionnaire was carried out in 2007. Respondents were asked their Willingness To Pay (WTP) per year for the conservation project. The main results show that the majority of respondents is in favour of the project implementation, and the mean WTP is about € 14 per year. Determinants of the WTP are income and being a member of associations for environmental goods conservation.
